    ODBC driver could not loaded due system error code 14001

      My computer OS is the Windows7 bits-64.
      I would like to use the Oracle Instant Client 11g in my computer. I have downloaded "instantclient-basic-windows.x64-" and "instantclient-odbc-windows.x64-" and extract to the same folder.
      I run the "odbc_install" to install it. I have set the "PATH" environment variable.

      After that, when I create the ODBC system DNS, the error message is poped up.
      "The Setup rountines for the Oracle in instantclient_11_2 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 14001: The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.(..\SQORAS32.DLL)."

      I have checked the event log that shows the following message:
      "Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\Oracle Client\SQORAS32.DLL". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFC,processorArchitecture="amd64",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.762" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis."

      Some ppl said that install the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)" could solve this error. However, I have installed from 2005 to 2010 both x64 and x86, the problem is still not fixed.

      How can I solve this problem?
